Pallet furnishing design

This will be the first short post from my hopefully longlasting series of good practice examples from the design and planning field. Today we bring you an intresting approach to furnishing an office space using recycable elements.

Dutch Most Architecture were commissioned by Amsterdam company Brandbase to design a temporary space for their new office location. The client wished to furnish the space with recycable materials, and gave the architects the idea to use shipping pallets.

The 3 layerd pallet structure is designed in such a way that, besides being merely a workplace, the entire element invites you to stand, sit or lay down on the pallets. This wood pallet assembly is a fun and clever way to recycle and frankly, I would definitely not mind working in an office with this kind of furniture if it looked this good.
